Stomach virus and nursing

Postby mamacyjoi » Wed Jan 09, 2013 4:58 am

I've contracted a nasty stomach virus; and obviously I'm dehydrated- other than fluid intake how can I improve breast milk production.

Just keep nursing and pumping. When you can keep things down try some fenugreek and blessed thistle or some oatmeal.
